Brain–Computer Interfaces 1

Foundations and Methods

Edited by Maureen Clerc, Inria Sophia Antipolis, France Laurent Bougrain, University of Lorraine, France Fabien Lotte, Inria Bordeaux, France

Brain–computer interfaces (BCI) are devices which measure brain activity and translate it into messages or commands, thereby opening up many investigation and application possibilities.
This book provides keys for understanding and designing these multi-disciplinary interfaces, which require many fields of expertise such as neuroscience, statistics, informatics and psychology.
This first volume,...

Live Cell Assays

From Research to Health and Regulatory Applications

Christophe Furger, Pierre et Marie Curie University, France

Cell assays include all methods of measurements on living cells. Confined for a long time to research laboratories, these emerging methods have, in recent years, found industrial applications that are increasingly varied and, from now on, regulatory.
Based on the recent explosion of knowledge in cell biology, the measurement of living cells represents a new class of industry-oriented research tes...

Multi-modality Cardiac Imaging

Processing and Analysis

Edited by Patrick Clarysse, CNRS-CREATIS, Lyon, France Denis Friboulet, INSA-Lyon, France

This book presents current and emerging methods developed for the processing and analysis of multi-modality cardiac images from state-of-the-art imaging systems, especially cardiac ultrasound imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray computed tomography (CT). The availability of multi-dimensional images (2D, 2D+t, 3D, 3D+t, etc.) allows for the quantitative assessment of the heart's shap...

Kinematic Analysis of Human Movement

FOCUS Series in Bioengineering and Health Science

Laurence Chèze, Claude Bernard University Lyon 1, France

Understanding human motion has, for a long time, involved a multidisciplinary approach encompassing many scientific disciplines: biomechanics, functional anatomy, physiology and neuroscience, among others. Although these different perspectives are all important in order to completely understand motion, it is not realistic to try to cover all these aspects at the same time. This book deliberately f...

Logical Modeling of Biological Systems

Edited by Luis Farinas del Cerro, IRIT, Toulouse, France Katsumi Inoue, National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan

Systems Biology is the systematic study of the interactions between the components of a biological system and studies how these interactions give rise to the function and behavior of the living system. Through this, a life process is to be understood as a whole system rather than the collection of the parts considered separately. Systems Biology is therefore more than just an emerging field: it re...

CO2 Biofixation by Microalgae

Modeling, Estimation and Control

Sihem Tebbani, SUPELEC, Gif-sur-Yvette, France Filipa Lopes, LGPM, Ecole Centrale Paris, France Rayen Filali, SUPELEC, Gif-sur-Yvette, France Didier Dumur, SUPELEC, Gif-sur-Yvette, France Dominique Pareau, LGPM, Ecole Centrale Paris, France

Due to the consequences of global warming and significant emissions of greenhouse gases, several avenues of research have been conducted to either reduce these emissions or to propose solutions to eliminate the pollutants. One of the most promising avenues of research is the use of microalgae for the biofixation of CO2. These micro-organisms can sequester CO2 through photosynthesis. In order to ob...
